Why does Goodwill not accept some items?

All donations that Goodwill can sell in its stores are greatly appreciated. However, when Goodwill receives items that cannot be used it requires additional resources to be used that decrease the amount of resources allocated to helping people with job training and placement program.

Some items that Goodwill cannot accept may be able to be recycled through your local city or county recycling center. Residents of Kent County can go to www.recyclekent.org for more information.
